A man from upstate New York recently suffered a serious leg injury when he was pinned between two vehicles after a motor vehicle accident on I-95 in New Rochelle. Three other men were also taken to Sound Shore Medical Center of Westchester in New Rochelle with a variety of injuries.
The multi-car accident began about 1:50 p.m. at Exit 16 when three vans from the same company were involved in a minor collision that blocked the left lane. The drivers reportedly stepped out of their vehicles and were standing in the road when a fourth vehicle, traveling at high speed, struck one of the vans.
A fifth vehicle drove up to the scene and became wedged between two of the original vehicles.
Joseph Russo, a 33 year-old Walden resident, who had been standing outside his vehicle, was severely injured when he was pinned between two of the vehicles. Angel Ortiz Rauda, a 31 year-old resident of New Rochelle, suffered a sprained wrist; Angelo Zaurdo, a 35 year-old Brooklyn resident, suffered minor injuries to his leg and arm; and Claude G. Vuley, a 35 year-old Washingtonville resident, suffered a broken pelvis.
I-95 was closed for approximately two hours while police completed an investigation.
